VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LML Payment Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:LMLP), today announced that wholly owned subsidiary, Beanstream Internet Commerce Inc., has launched a multi currency processing solution to help merchants harness the power of the global e-commerce market.
Beanstream's Global Transaction Processing suite allows merchants to accept international Internet, phone order, email order and other card not present credit card payments in up to 150 currencies and over 200 countries. Unlike competing products which can burden the consumer with hefty conversion rates and turn away potential purchasers, Beanstream's secure multi currency processing products ensure merchants can deliver competitive local pricing through geo-targeted payment sites.
Beanstream offers two flexible settlement options to simplify entry for businesses of all sizes. Merchants may deposit funds from international payments into a single US dollar account to eliminate the costs associated with establishing an international business presence and managing multiple bank accounts. Those with an existing international presence may settle funds directly to accounts in the currency of the original transaction.
"The Internet has no borders so the vast majority of online merchants already have an international presence whether or not they are specifically targeting markets outside of North America. The Beanstream solution provides merchants with the processing tools necessary to actively pursue international clients while removing common purchase barriers such as complicated currency conversion and fluctuating international pricing. We are pleased to introduce this valuable addition to our line of payment processing products," said LML President Craig Thomson.
